West Ham will look to end Gokhan Tore’s season-long loan in January, according to a report.
Hammers blog Claret and Hugh claim there is no recall clause in the deal that keeps the winger at the London Stadium until next season.
But it is said that West Ham chiefs have been unimpressed by Tore and will attempt to negotiate an early end to the loan as January approaches.
This comes as Claret and Hugh report that Tore has been ruled out for up to five weeks after picking up a quadricep injury.
The 24-year-old is set to be sidelined until the middle of November, missing league games against the likes of Crystal Palace and Everton as well as the Hammers EFL Cup fourth-round tie against Chelsea on October 26.
The report claims that West Ham paid a £2.5million fee to take the former Chelsea youth player on loan for 2016-17.
Tore, 24, has made eight league and cup appearances for Slaven Bilic’s side this term, but has been poor in the eyes of Hammers fans.
Tore was substituted at half time in the last match against Middlesbrough in place of striker Simone Zaza, a decision which was met with cheers from West Ham fans.
The injury to Tore has now left the Hammers short of options on the wings, with just Dimitri Payet, Sofiane Feghouli and Michail Antonio recognised as wide midfielders.
The Hammers next face Pardew’s Palace on Saturday in the Premier League’s tea-time kick off, as they look to end their dismal run of games that has seen them win just once in seven Premier League encounters.
